If you registration has not been approved after 3 working days please contact us.
- Clinicians and Professionals in the eating disorder field may register and post, but we ask that the conversation remain primarily between and in the service of the questions posted from users on the forum. Clinicians should refrain from marketing their services, and are asked to contact MGEDT's Charity Director before posting any links to surveys, interview requests, or announcements.
- Protect your privacy by choosing a username that does not reveal your real name or identity, and be careful in what information you provide in your profile: it is available for viewing by registered members.

Please refrain from providing your specific geographical locality or contact information or your post will be deleted.
- Advice given on online forums is of variable quality and reliability. MGEDT Admins will try to provide advice to individual posts where possible.
